Back in December, LG started rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Korean version of the LG G2, but what about the rest of the globe? According to LG Italy, the update may end up reaching Europe by the end of March.

The response from LG Italy comes by way of Facebook, where LG responded to a user inquiring as to when KitKat would finally be making its way over to users in Italy. Although LG Italy only specifically mentioned their own country, generally speaking these types of updates often arrive all around the same timeframe throughout most of Europe. Furthermore, LG France had previously indicated that their update had been delayed to sometime in early 2014.

What’s interesting about the claim of March 2014 is that it isn’t the first time that this month has been linked to the G2’s KitKat rollout. Back in November, an LG Canada rep said that the update was expected to arrive to major carriers in Canada by the end of Q1 2014, which basically means late-March.

Again, LG has yet to set these release timeframes in stone, and it’s important to note that the United States tends to be a bit slower when it comes to rolling out updates — at least when carriers are involved. In other words, while the month of March sounds like a plausible candidate for a global rollout of KitKat, things could change.

For those interested in taking a closer look at KitKat running on the Korean LG G2, be sure to check out the video below:

For current LG G2 owners, are you impatiently awaiting the upgrade to KitKat, or are you perfectly content with Jelly Bean for now?

    I am fine for now as this phone was a major upgrade (Captivate S) for me. Had the Samsung for three years with no updates. What I would like to see is 4.4 in March or April and one more major one before EOL.

    Somewhat of topic, but… can you guys at AA also get some news on when Kitkat is expected for the G Pad?

  • Updates that matter

    Things this update needs to have otherwise it’s bs:

    . Screen flicking aka auto contrast fix
    . Random phantom screen selection
    . Full screen mode when watching flash video, i don’t like to see nav bar when watching porn
    . Better team management because i have only 300 mb or less available at any given time
    . Fix auto focus in video
    . Fix exposure for pic mode often time under auto or intelligent mode pics are over exposed
    . Add browser for qslide mine dont have this so qslide is useless
    . ART
    . TRIM
    . Battery optimization
    . UI design clean up
    . Swipe on standard keyboard Sprint version do not have this option
    . Sound volume can be better
    . Fix color saturation because it causes screen to look dimmer than it really is

    The G2 is easily a competitor for every other high-end smartphone out there. The “weird” button layout works for us, and it’s paired with some smart touch functions that are well thought out. The phone looks and feels great, and just works as a smartphone should.
